Meridian's US West Coast FBO Meridian Hayward has again been voted the Corporate Aircraft Association's (CAA) Preferred FBO at Hayward Executive airport in California. CAA is a membership-based organisation that is dedicated to enhancing the operating efficiencies of corporate flight departments. A CAA Preferred FBO represents a combination of superior service and fair pricing for its members, provided by highly qualified personnel and FBO management.
A CAA Preferred FBO must be voted into the programme by qualified members. If there are multiple FBOs at an airport, the one receiving the highest percentage of votes is awarded the exclusive CAA contract for three years. Meridian Hayward was first named CAA Preferred in 2018, the first year it was eligible for the designation.
“Our entire team is honoured to again receive this recognition,” says Meridian Hayward general manager Carlos Rodriguez. “At Meridian, outstanding customer service is our hallmark. This designation gives us the additional opportunity to demonstrate to CAA members that we provide exceptional service and line support at competitive prices.”
Meridian Hayward currently features a 6,300 sq ft terminal, 3.5 acres of ramp space and a 30,000 sq ft hangar that can accommodate any size corporate aircraft, including large cabin jets. As part of the company's overall growth strategy, plans are well underway to build a brand new 40,000 sq ft hangar, as well as expand the terminal facility and enhance the amenities for both crew and passengers.
“It is very gratifying to be recognised by our customers for our commitment to excellence and a desire to provide the best value for our services,” adds Rodriguez. “Both our Hayward facility and our Teterboro facility are committed to always putting the customer first.”
Meridian's East Coast FBO Meridian Teterboro has been the CAA Preferred FBO at Teterboro airport in New Jersey since 1996.
